Taking Time for Myself

"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you." 2 Thessalonians 3:16

The last couple of days have left me feeling rather...tense. I have had several interview for part-time nannying positions (for after hours of my 9am-5pm nannying job), have had emails to send for my sorority and for paws4people, and have been working through some disagreements with some family members.

Yesterday I decided to close the laptop, turn off the cell phone, sleep in, and enjoy a relaxing day at the pool reading and getting a tan (to some degree) with my sister. The rest of the evening was dedicated to continuing to read through the Book of John, watching a few Disney movies and eating ice cream with some friends!

After church this morning, I realize that I wasn't quite ready to go "back to work" today but knew that it was necessary. So, I decided to combine a day of relaxing and work by sitting in front of the television catching up on my recorded TLC shows, catching up on reading my favorite blogs, and responding to emails and finishing up a few excel files. What do you think? Well, it is working out nicely for me!

I will be more productive tomorrow; I think.

What do you guys do to relax during the summer?


  1. Sounds like a fun day at the pool. Reading is what I do to relax!!

  2. Some times we just need a mental health day! Thanks for visiting my blog! I can't seem to follow you while I'm at work but I will definitely add you to my list when I get home this evening. Have a great day!

  3. Katy-- Somehow, I think I could have predicted that! ;] Thanks for stopping in!

    Gwen-- No worries! Thanks so much for stopping in! I'm enjoying reading your blog and I can't wait to read more! Hope all is well!
